texas keeps it alive and going to 3rd is thole with two outs. and he have been good all night. >> sorry rain missed it right down the middle and cannot field the ground ball and that is not inguarantee seeing thole go to 3rd base. because if he gets a jump and soriano does not have a good move to first, he can steal 2nd and put himself in a position where with one hit they can tie the game. all unless this is an energy to hairston i don't understand this move at all. this is hairston's spot, he onlied the only team up after pinch hitting for nieuwenhuis and he has eight home runs and instead it is valdespin east bench to bat. >> a hit against a right hander

[ male announcer ] it started like this... i speak the language of business. i know how jobs are created. [ male announcer ] but it ended like this. one of the worst economic records in the country. when mitt romney was governor, massachusetts lost 40,000 manufacturing jobs. a rate twice the national average. and fell to forty-seventh in job creation. fourth from the bottom.
instead of hiring workers from his own state, romney outsourced call center jobs to india. he cut taxes for millionaires like himself... while raising them on the middle class... and left the state two point six billion deeper in debt. so now, when mitt romney talks about what he'd do as president... i know what it takes to create jobs. [ male announcer ] remember, we've heard it all before. i know how jobs are created. [ male announcer ] romney economics. it didn't work then, and it won't work now.

welcome to the fox 5 news at 10:00. i'm laura evans. we begin with a weather alert. we are still two weeks away from the summer season and people are already feeling the extreme heat and taking precautions. today, more than 200,000 girl scouts packed the national mall for the organization's centennial anniversary. this is the largest gathering of girl scouts in history. organizers are hoping to set a world record. for some, the event was clouded by scorching temperatures. more than 60 people were treated on the scene. more than a dozen were taken to the hospital. if you thought today was bad, wait until tomorrow. we'll turn things over to gwen for a little more. gwen. >> laura, you are absolutely right. it is going to be worse tomorrow because the humidity is going to be higher. it's going to feel a lot warmer than it is. very uncomfortable out there. let's take a look at the numbers from today. 91 degrees. 88 at dulles and 90 degrees at dwi. and right now, it's 78 degrees.
humidity is at 58% right now with a southerly wind flow. overall for temperatures, currently anywhere from the mid 60s to the upper 70s. even at this hour of the night. definitely some dangerous conditions. here is a few tips that we want you to be aware of. water especially, as much as you can. take frequent breaks. and wear light, loose clothing and try to protect your head, also do not leave pets outside in this weather. young children should not be out in this heat and check on your elderly neighbors. these are things that you have to keep in mind. details mostly for tomorrow and the week ahead a little later. back to you. >> there are an estimated 250,000 muslims in the area. but no washington area schools close on muslim holidays. a councilman wants to change that and he has gotten a response for the superintendent. awedly barnes has the story from the newsroom.
audrey. >> reporter: he sent a letter to the school board and superintendent last month asking them to add two muslim holidays to the school calendar as official days off. that request is getting mixed reviews. councilman says it isn't fair that montgomery county schools close for some religious holidays for some faiths and not others. so he's asked the board to consider shutting the schools for two important muslim holidays. >> these are the two holiest days of the year. they are call ede, which means festival. >> they have two sons in montgomery county schools support the effort. >> as a jew, i feel it is important for different religious groups to have their holidays recognized by the school system. >> it depends on, i guess how much disruption it would cause to the school schedule and how big a need there is.
how many muslims students or teachers want to take off these holidays. >> there are opponents who say students already miss enough class time without adding two muslim holidays into the mix. >> schools are closed on the primary christian holidays and the two high holy days that jews celebrate. so school is already closed on many, many days throughout the year and we are talking about one day, which i don't think will be inconvenient or burdensome. >> he writes, it is extremely difficult to consider all of the potential holidays at school closings in such a diverse community as montgomery county. mcps gladly would accept a representative from the muslim community to serve on the school calendar committee work group. a move this parent says presents a teachable moment to the county students. >> i think as part of how we
think of america and try to be a more conclusive society seems to make a lot of sense. >> even if the school calendar committee works or approves that muslim holiday as a day off from school, it wouldn't happen next year. that calendar is already set. the earliest it could happen would be during the 2014 school year and one of those holidays would fall in august, so it wouldn't be a factor. the committee will start working on the calendar. thank you. : people who live in a fairfax county apartment complex are on edge after a body was found on the property. the discovery made just before 1:00 this morning in the 11,000 block in reston. the victim identified as 40- year-old. police say he lived in the complex. officers went door to door today interviewing people who were shaken by the news. >> upset about this area and having second thoughts, you know, because i'm almost to

firefighters, and police officers. on friday, president obama called on congress to help states prevent those job losses. the video contrast the president's comments with romney's response. >> he says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. did he not get the message of wisconsin? the american people did. it's time for us to cut back on government and help the american people. >> the ad comes as the white house tries to turn the page on president obama's own yesterday that the private sector is doing fine. after widespread criticism from republicans, the president was forced to clarify that statements later in the day saying that while private sector jobs have grown, it is absolutely clear that the economy is doing fine. mitt romney called the president out of touch. attorney general, eric holder, has appointed two u.s. attorneys to investigate recent leaks of national security information. meantime, some lawmakers claim they have evidence that some of the intelligence is coming from

writers of these articles of all stated that they didn't come from this white house. and that's not how we operate. >> but one top senate republican, john mccain, points out that the articles on these leaks identify some of the sources as administration officials and aids to the president. senator mccain went on to say, quote, i continue to call on the president to immediately appoint a special council to fully investigate. and congressman smith says anyone convicted of leaking should face jail time. in washington, molly heneberg, fox news. another big story we're following tonight, we are learning more about the arrest of megachurch pastor. a police report says dollar's 15-year-old daughter told authorities her father choked and slapped her after an argument. fox's caitlin pratt has the latest from atlanta. >> reporter: the reverend spent most of last night in the fayette county jail locked up
